If its not bad I would leave it original. I have painted convertibles before.

I had a vacuum shop sand down the base, (has to be very smooth!). I used 2 coats of primer, and 3 coats of Rustoleum gloss paint.

This one isn't quite finished yet, but gives you a good idea of what you can do with them.

Next my hoover 150s!
